New Online Supply Chain Digital Consciousness Index Assessment Tool Helps Firms Benchmark Their Progress Towards Digital Supply Chains

The tool is based on the findings of the 2019 MHI Annual Industry Reports.

MHI just released the Supply Chain Digital Consciousness Index (DCI) online assessment tool. This tool is based on the findings of the 2019 MHI Annual Industry Report, titled “Elevating Supply Chain Digital Consciousness,” and is designed to help companies measure and gauge their progress on the journey to more digital, always-on supply chains.

Four Stages of Digital Adoption and the Supply Chain DCI

The 2019 MHI Annual Report defined a pyramid of digital adoption that has four technology stages, starting with the collection of data through digital connectivity, and then moving up the pyramid to generate increasing supply chain value and insights from that base data through automation, advanced analytics, and ultimately artificial intelligence.

The report also included a Supply Chain Digital Consciousness framework, developed by MHI and Deloitte, to help organizations assess their digital mindset and gauge their progress on the journey to becoming more digitally conscious.

This framework can help companies understand their current level of digital adoption and then identify gaps and next steps to boost digital consciousness and supply chain performance. Within this framework, the report includes a Supply Chain DCI assessment tool companies can use to measure where they are on their digital adoption journey.
